Sin - Transgression of the Law of God
Sin - What is Sin?
I wanted to get a better grasp on what sin is. I know that sin is the transgression of the law and I want to know more. I know that I can learn alot about something by reading the word in the context of the Bible. Thankfully the Bible uses the proper understanding of the word and doesn't try to twist concepts that describe God and His will.
I know that some people claim that all sin is only against God. I have evidence against this in the Bible. The Bible teaches that we can sin against others.

Many Things Can Be a Sin Against God

Sin of Others Against Us Can Be Forgiven
Gen_50:17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
